PARIS — Marc Jacobs isn’t exactly averse to retro themes — in fact, weaving those effects into his beautiful, distinctive collections is one of his trademarks. This season, he explored the Sixties for Louis Vuitton, with Space-Age looks and other styles that included bold, graphic furs and mini suits. The short skirts are also part of the mini trend that started last season and has had a strong influence for fall, too. Here, Jacobs’ vivid little top and abbreviated skirt for Vuitton. For more leg-baring looks, see pages 6 and 7.
